Jupiter's Family Secrets

Created by Andy Shaner Last updated 5/26/2016

Jupiter's Family Secrets will acquaint you with Jupiter and the Juno mission. The activities showcase how the Juno mission will unveil Jupiter's deepest secrets, including clues about how our solar system formed and Jupiter's unique traits. You may design your own program of one or more of these flexible selections, or you may choose to build the story of the Juno mission and its science through the complete series of activities! Background information and facilitator resources are provided to help you prepare to lead the activities. The activities are suitable for children ages 8 to 13, with a rich selection of deeper investigations for children ages 11 to 13. Created as part of the Lunar and Planetary Institute's Explore! program, this suite of activities was designed with public libraries in mind.
